Blurb: After pulling the plug on her mother’s life support, seventeen-year-old Chloe Madison moves to live with relatives she hardly knows. Her new hometown in the Adirondack Mountains is barely more than a pinpoint on the map, but it’s shrouded in deadly secrets and strange family legends. Chloe is determined to keep her head down, finish high school, and get the heck out of there. Until she meets the enigmatic Trent Halstead. Something intriguing hides beneath his quiet self-assurance and hero hair. Maybe there’s something—or someone—worth sticking around for after all.
But when a rash of unsolved murders leaves two of Chloe’s classmates dead, she begins to suffer from disturbing hallucinations that build to the horrifying image of Trent as a murderous vampire. With nowhere else to go, she’s stuck in a town she hates, surrounded by people she can’t trust, and she’s pretty sure she’s going to be lunch.
If all that isn’t bad enough, Trent is hiding a lethal secret, besides the whole immortal bloodsucker thing. He’s the not-so-proud owner of an ancient, family curse—no Halstead will ever know true love—and he’s desperate to find a way to break the curse. Could Chloe be the key to his happiness or just another secret Trent wished he never unlocked?

“Do you regret it?” My breath caught.
“There’s only been one time in my entire existence when I regretted my choice.” He gathered my hair and draped it over my shoulder, exposing my neck. I stiffened. Behind me, he half groaned, half growled. “I’m not going to hurt you, Chloe.” He pressed his lips to the back of my neck, and my eyes fluttered closed.
No matter what promises he made, I couldn’t calm my racing heart. What if the smell of my blood was too much for him? What if he couldn’t control himself and bit me? I swallowed the lump in my throat, paralyzed with uncertainty.
“The day of Rachel’s funeral… the look on your face when you learned the truth.” He inhaled sharply. “In that moment, I despised what I was. I’d never wanted to be human as badly as I did that day.”
Without thinking, I spun around, rose up on my tiptoes, and pressed my lips to his, fully expecting him to kiss me back. But he didn’t.
He held me out at an arm’s length. “You’re not ready for that, or what happens next.”
I scowled. “I have been kissed before, Trent.”
His eyes darkened and narrowed. “And I’m not ready to hear about you and other guys.”
He was jealous? Seriously? He was the hottest guy I’d ever seen, and he was a vampire, which meant he could literally have anything or anyone he wanted—and he was jealous that I’d been kissed before. What a totally normal, human reaction. The thought almost made me laugh. Hesitantly, I closed the distance between us. He didn’t push me away this time. Instead, he took my face into his hands, brushing some flyaway strands of my hair behind my ear.
He pressed a tender kiss to my forehead. I leaned into him, wanting this moment to last. His lips lingered, and then, slowly, he dragged his hands from my face and down my arms until he slipped them around my back, yanking me even closer.
“You have no idea how hard it’s been to be with you and have to hide what I am.” He moved to kiss my cheek. “To want to give myself to you so completely but not be able to.”
My stomach dropped in a completely good way, and my heart rate sped up. He kissed the corner of my mouth, then pulled back. I groaned.
He chuckled and traced my bottom lip with his finger. “Soon, Chloe. I promise.”
